artifacts and an Otodus

This post is a combination of my last 2 trips to an Eocene/Miocene spot. On the first trip we went collecting with friends who we met on a past trip. We decided to try a spot that has produced nice fossils in the past.We didn't get alot of teeth but at the end of the day we ended up with a chub blade, a broken Otodus, and 3 Native American atifacts. One looks like it was the bottom of a spear point which was reworked. On the next trip we did some exploring and found a spot that looked good. We didn't get alot of teeth that day either, and almost all of the teeth we did get were broken. We did get some otodus blades though.But I knew there had to be a nice tooth somewhere, then I looked in my sifter and saw a partially covered Otodus, just a hair under 2 1/4 inches. I also found 2 sawfish rostral spines. Both trips produced some nice finds.
